Do you think hair extensions are weird? Honest answer. All my readers comment and vote, and not just the one’s interested in beauty!
The first time I heard about hair extensions was on YouTube. I thought it was the strangest thing, and thought only a select few people wore them. So many questions raced through my brain:
- What if they fell out?
- Can you tell that they look fake?
- Would you judge me? lol
- Will it be damaging?
- How long do they last?
- How much are they?
Rach from Pink Peonies wears them. Look how natural they look!
The reason why I’d rather clip in, than spend $500 + hours in a salon to have them sewn in, is because I may regret them, feel them in my hair and freak out. Plus, I don’t know how to care for them if they’re permanently attached to my head.
The after a few years of watching countless people show the world how to clip them (or “install them” as I like to call it) into their own hair, and blend them in — I’m sucked in. I kind of want a pair. Who knows if/when I buy a pair, wilL I actually have the courage to leave the house with them on. Everyone knows what style my hair is, and how little of it I actually have. Walking into work with a full head of hair down to my hips would definitely look odd.
But before you say no. Let me give you something to think about. You can dye them. You can style them to blend with your hair. I’d bring them into my hair stylist and clip them in, and ask her to cut them to an ideal length (1-3 inches longer than my natural hair). Seems okay, right?
These are the two companies I’ve heard good things about:
I actually contacted a rather unknown company a few years ago, presenting the perfect hair candidate (ie: ME…) since I do have fine hair that doesn’t seem to like to grow past a little bit beneath my shoulders. Hello right? I, as you probably would’ve guessed, got denied. I didn’t really think anything of it, since that comes with the territory. Plus, I don’t really film YouTube videos anymore. But I do blog!
Anyway. What I’m getting at is that I’ve done my research and I’m kind of looking at getting a set of … fake hair… for myself. God, just typing that grosses me out.
Let me know in the comments, what you think of them! Honest answers appreciated!
